    The one in the foreground in the first pic looks like a Saxony...it's a Runner-KC cross?

    That's the fun part about crosses/mixes - you never know what you're going to get! ;) Beautiful flock.

    Than you- I do take the credit after god of course- jajaja
    I have never studied and observed anything this much! I spend hours and hours with them- I still get up at night and watch them in the duck house as they sleep and shift around...I know each duck and we capture 1 every week or so to touch and examine every duck part-ha ha
    I currently am battling mice in and around the pen- no evidence of mice/rats in the duck house itself...mmm
    I want to kill those pests....

    If they got some Indian runner duck in them you might be in luck. I don't know about other duck-species but for my Indian runners killing mice is a favourite past-time-hobby.
    They silently wait where they have seen them coming from/walking by...wait for hours.. and then peck! peck! peck! Right on the head.
